Enjoy the views inside and out in a sensitively-modernised Victorian home in one of London’s most prestigious garden squares. By Catherine Golding.
You’re a passenger in a car and you’re being driven round London, blindfolded. You are dropped off, the blindfold removed and the sight that greets you is the type of picturesque square you would expect to see in a movie – the archetypal image that our capital city loves to portray to the rest of the world.
It’s Chalcot Square in Primrose Hill, NW1, and you’re delighted to find a magnificent Grade II Listed home is on the market, available through Arlington Residential.
The elegance of the Victorian house is inspiring, but it has been completely modernised and it has outstanding specification throughout, as well as beautiful décor.
With a grand, first-floor drawing room overlooking the garden square and a 48ft-long garden to the rear, there is also a pleasing, open aspect to the property.
Large windows make the most of the lovely outlook, while other features such as high ceilings, wooden floors and feature fireplaces all contribute to the stately feel of this wonderful home.
Built in 1850, the house has 3,243sq ft of accommodation comprising an entrance hall, five bedrooms, en-suite bathroom, en-suite showroom, family bathroom, dressing room, two cloakrooms, double drawing room, family/playroom, kitchen/ breakfast room, dining room, utility room, kitchenette, wine cellar, eaves storage, terrace and a balcony.
It is set back from the square, which is just a short distance from Primrose Hill High Street and its eclectic mix of bookshops, cafés and restaurants. Primrose Hill Park and Regent’s Park are also nearby, so there is plenty of scope for enjoying the very best of the city’s open spaces.
